Mary’s adventurous spirit took her from Roblin, Manitoba in the early 1950’s to Kelowna where she met and married Albert, the love of her life.  Long-time Glenmore residents, Mary and Albert ran the family farm and many other businesses over the years.  Mary was dedicated to her community and served four terms as a city alderman from 1973 to 1982.  She also served on the Regional District, the Glenmore Irrigation District and was a founding member of the Grape Growers Association.
